Speaking of failing to upgrade Xorg from 6.9 to 7.2, has anyone else 
encountered the error

configure: error: cannot find GL library - make sure Mesa or other 
OpenGL package is installed

while building the port "xdriinfo"? I've tried building Mesa 7.0 by hand 
and copying files into the appropriate dirs [following the instructions 
at http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/Building], but no luck.

X seems to work perfectly well without xdriinfo [since this machine's 
way too old for even the most efficient of triangle-pushing games :D ], 
but I hate having a stale dependency in my ports database.

[Apologies if this was asked already - I haven't read the list for a while.]
